I *MAY* have one or two spare Sun mice around.  If I do, they will
almost certainly be "Crossbow" opto-mechanical mice.  I'll check when I
get a chance, if that's what you're looking for.

If what you need is the older-yet Mouse Systems optical mice with the
Sun-specific (and directional) screen-printed steel pad, I can't help you.
